About Competition


International Essay Contest for Young People 2024 has been recently organised by the Goi Peace Foundation based in Japan.

This annual essay contest is organised in an effort to harness the energy, creativity and initiative of the world's youth in promoting a culture of peace and sustainable development. It also aims to inspire society to learn from the young minds and to think about how each of us can make a difference in the world.

This year's theme is “My Experience of Overcoming Conflict”. “Conflicts occur for a variety of reasons, including differences in opinions and values.
